Court records show a former Sapulpa softball coach accused of videotaping girls in a locker room in 2012 is scheduled for a court hearing next month where he is expected to accept a plea agreement.

In September, Howard Harjo, 55, waived his right to a jury trial. Last week a Creek County judge set a November 5 court hearing for Harjo.

He is charged with nine counts of child sexual exploitation, ten counts of possession of juvenile pornography and three counts of peeping tom with photographic or electronic equipment.

Sapulpa Police said Harjo hid two cameras, including one in a trash can, and that both cameras contained images of girls nude from the waist down. Officers stated in an affidavit the incidents occurred between 2009 and 2012 and may have involved as many as 14 victims.

They also said Harjo confessed to the allegations.
